Dear American people,

A poem for you today:

An American Villanelle [Adult Mix]

If we wanted to, there’s much we could fix.

Most of us just sit, frozen with despair—

we wait too patiently watching the tricks.

 

We blast AR-15s at the foundation’s bricks;

we open holes—spray smoke & blood in the air.

If we wanted to, there’s much we could fix.

 

If we allowed reasoned thought in the mix,

our ludicrous death cult would be laid bare—

we wait too patiently watching the tricks.

 

Our country of dunces plays pew-pew with sticks,

and we absorb it through screens from the armchair.

If we wanted to, there’s much we could fix.

 

Staring at the ratings gold of politics,

we trade peace for children’s blood & fanfare.

We wait too patiently watching the tricks.

 

We plan our ride in his boat on the Styx

while watching children who aim at repair.

If we wanted to, there’s much we could fix.

We wait too patiently watching the tricks.

 

Sincerely,

Letters2Trump
